Another Weekly Update

Hello everyone. It’s time again for the mid-week update. The daily film reviews are still going strong. I have today’s one ready to publish, between 5pm and 6pm (UK time). I also have tomorrow’s written up. Today will be Dario Argento’s Phenomena which I watched last weekend, tomorrow will be Monster, directed and written by Patty Jenkins.

This weekend, I’m also planning on reviews for Escape Room 2, The Forever Purge, Fear Street part 3 and Space Jam 2. The order isn’t completely set in stone, but keep an eye out because they will be coming.

On Friday morning, I’m also going to be uploading the second part of my top 50 films. I’m looking forward to sharing this with everyone. The post is written and ready to go, so that will be going up around 9am on Friday.

Next Thursday, the plan is to put up the next Franchise Catch-Up, which will be John Wick. I’m going to binge them over the weekend. I don’t know whether I’m looking forward to them or not, they’ve just never appealed, but I live in hope. Fingers crossed I’ll think I’m stupid for putting them off.

I’m also hoping to finish reading some books to do another book post next week some time. I don’t have a set date for this. Writing is still going steady, and the new short story should be ready either for the last week of July or the very start of August.

Something else I want to talk about briefly is getting back into shape. I used to have a more physical job where I was constantly on my feet and moving about. For a brief year or so I was a healthy weight for the only time in my adult life. Since moving to office work, and especially since working from home, I’ve put on a lot of weight and am in no way physically fit. I really need to do something about this, as it’s having a bad effect on my life and mental health. My knees are achy a lot of the time, which is a problem I used to have before losing weight previously. I don’t want to have long-term problems due to bad eating and exercise habits. To motivate myself into getting back into shape, I’m going to be posting my weight, and target weight each week. Having it out there will hopefully keep me moving in the right direction. I have a small trip planned in November for Wales Comic Con and that’s the deadline to get back into shape. I know I can do it, I just need to actually focus on it.

I hope there’s something above that sounds interesting and you’re looking forward to what’s up ahead.

Thanks for reading and until next time,
